What happens at 3AM... tongue.gif

In all seriousness I would still take the value out of selling the above setup and going SFF APU anyway.

I do love NZXT cases, but I showed my friend the cases Nutty Pumpkin suggested, and he seems to prefer the Cooler Masters. So I will go with whatever he likes.
I will add that monitor to my list of monitors to look into.
I can't get the link for that HDD to work, but Im betting it's the same one I picked above thumb.gif
I think I will go with that PSU too, as it is rather cheap and it's on the recommended PSU list.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Actually, I had not considered selling the AM3 stuff. I will definitely think about that. I know a 960T is way overkill for what my friend will be doing with it, and that chip should really be in the hands of an overclocker. The problem is I don't have enough rep to use the OCN market. I will see what those parts are going for on Ebay and then decide I guess. Thanks. +Rep just for pretend.

OMG! That cpu and mb would be exactly what I have been looking for for my dedicated boinc rig! DAMN you rep requirement!

TBH if you sell your not going to get much back with commission and shipping.

Looks like you found a psu you like, HDD I would wait till sites have sales you could pick one up real cheap, OPT same thing with HDD newegg has promo codes for them all the time.

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 912 $49 after mir (expires 11/7)

960t is going for around $150 on Ebay right now, and about $60 for a M5A97. That totals almost what I paid for them new. Not a bad deal for me. I just have to decide if I want the extra hassle of posting, waiting for a buyer, and shipping.

As for the HDD, I am hoping to see some nice sales this holiday season. I will most likely buy from a brick & mortar store though. Tiger Direct or Micro Center. They are close enough to me, and it's usually safer than having them shipped.

I think that case would work nicely, and it's just the right price. Thanks. smile.gif

Idk what ebay you were looking at but for a 960T, there were only 2. One sold for 69.99 other was 100. And the mb was 50. But true I wouldnt bother with selling if you only need a psu,case, and hdd.

I see what your looking at but you need to look in completed listings then filter US only. Then read some of them that go for $150, they have other things not just the cpu. Either way you sound like you have made your mind to keep it. No matter which way your friend will be super happy.

And I would buy that case asap before 11/7, they are going quick. I might be picking one up or I might get a rosewill. Also heres something else to take a look at it expires 11/7 as well.

For a monitor, I would check out your local Craigslist (if you have one) because there are usually some pretty decent deals on TVs/monitors. Buying a used screen may not be the desired option, but you have time to look around for a great condition monitor for an amazing price.

Edit; I would check out all the parts you end up choosing in the used section (eBay/ Craigslist/ local places, etc) money saved is money not spent.

Just an update. I bought this psu and this case today, mainly because of the prices. My buddy picked up a used monitor from his work. I haven't seen it yet, but I suppose it will work for now.
